Young Investigator Travel Awards

Applications for the the 2024 Annual Molecular Psychiatry Meeting
Young Investigator Awards have closed.


Travel Award Applications

DEADLINE: October 20, 2023

There are two categories of travel awards:

(1) Students who are currently enrolled in PhD, MD, or MD/PhD programs, and
(2) Postdoctoral fellows, medical residents, or junior faculty within 5 years of completing postdoctoral or residency training.

Applicants may have a career development award (K-type), but may not be a PI on a current or previous R-level grant (R03 and R36 grants permitted). Previous awardees are ineligible.

Please upload your CV or NIH biosketch, a half-page career statement and explanation of why this travel award would be beneficial for you, and one letter of recommendation that also confirms your eligibility (for graduate/medical student award, currently enrolled in PhD, MD, or MD/PhD program; for postdoc/resident/junior faculty award, currently a postdoctoral fellow or resident, or within 5 years of completing training). Preference will be given to those presenting a symposium talk or poster at the meeting.

Only young investigators receiving the awards will be notified in the fall.  Awards for both types are for $1,500.  Travel awardees must register for the conference (registration fees are not waived).
